Take Me To The Tingko Beach
by Leslie Lidot
Enjoying the cool water!
I grew up in Alcoy, Cebu, a small town located in the Southeastern part of Cebu (92kms from Cebu City) which is famous for the Siloy Festival (Black Shama found in the biggest rainforest in Cebu) and with its renowned tourist beach spot located in Daanlungsod, Cebu called Tingko Beach Resort.
People visit this place by flocks, either families or friends to chill, eat, do picnics, gatherings, reunions and stroll around for the first time. Me as a local resident, I often go here alone because you might feel awkward and loner if you do! We come here almost once a year or twice with all of my high school classmates for our annual reunions.
Tingko offers sail boats too which takes you to the part of the beach in which the sand is visible and can be stepped upon whenever its low tide.
Riding a “bangka” for P50/person you already have an half-hour for you to dive in and swim.
The water is clear and all “bangka” provide life vests and goggles for you to use if you are brave enough to dive in so peeps, worry no more!!
Tingko is known for its white refined sand.
And crystal clear water.
I am looking forward to spend another year here with my friends this coming December or January for our next reunion. Cebuanos should never miss this “Little Boracay” in Alcoy 🙂 You guys should not worry about entrance fees too because this wonderful spot here is free for the public. Bring your squad and have fun. Sembreak is here already too!! 🙂
